An exciting event has been added to the GSV’s calendar. On 15 November Dr Richard Broome, the President of the Royal Historical Society, will talk about his recent book Entwined Lives, (David Donnan with Richard Broome) a family history story.
This presentation will discuss the post research challenge: how do we write to be read? What strategies do we adopt, what voice do we assume, what book do we imagine we might write?
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Richard talk about translating family history research into a book that will be treasured by your descendants. Be quick to book!
